Excelsior Pub at Café 217 in Albany, previously open Tuesday through Sunday -- except for a recent one-week winter break, will be open on Mondays as well starting next week.
The hours now will be 4 p.m. to midnight Monday-Thursday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.
Owner Jason Bowers is in the process of expanding his beer line with more New York brews not usually found in this market -- such as the Hop Warrior Imperial IPA from Rooster Fish Brewing in Watkins Glen and Whale Brown Ale from Community Beer Works in Buffalo he announced on his Facebook page.
The Excelsior -- the name is the state motto, and reflective of the New York-only drink offerings -- is located at 12½ Delaware Avenue. Phone: 462-0050.
